Jackson says that a trade might be best for Carmelo, Knicks

New York Knicks president Phil Jackson said Friday that All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony "would be better off somewhere else".

If it's not going to happen here, the Knicks could become Kristaps Porzingis' team next season. The team missed out on the playoffs for the fourth straight season.

Regardless of any struggles this season, Porzingis is the future of the franchise. Later in the month, he said, "I think it was pretty easy to tell from the inside that we're not that good of a team". Remember, point guard Derrick Rose skipped an entire game once without any warning.

Jackson will finally discuss some of that Friday, when he is scheduled to speak to the local media for the first time since his preseason press conference in September. He said there was "a lot of stuff that's not clear" to players and that it was "hard to play like that".

The tricky thing, of course, is that a whole bunch of teams are out of the running before discussions even start.

Earlier in the day, Jackson, continuing his unusual approach of alienating his team's stars, said Porzingis is too green to carry the Knicks.

"No, I don't think so".

Anthony has been one of the NBA's premier scorers since being drafted third overall in 2003.

Anthony averaged 22.5 points this season, which is an increase over last season, while his 5.9 rebounds per game represent his lowest average in 10 seasons. Before making Porzingis a focal point, Jackson needs to find a trade partner for Anthony. "That's a big load for anybody to take on", Jackson said, via the New York Daily News. The Knicks and Cavaliers could revisit the Carmelo Anthony for Kevin Love trade, especially if the Cavaliers don't win the National Basketball Association championship this year. Either way, Jackson is responsible for this situation.

"No, I don't [think he's ready]".

"No, I don't. He's 21 years old", Jackson said. (No Eastern Conference team won 54 games this year.) They haven't been able to win with Phil Jackson. But he's shown that he's competitive.
